Error when computing Automorphism Group

asked 2015-10-01 10:00:48 -0500

I am new to Sage. Recently, I tried to compute the Automorphism Group of $\mathbb{Z}_4\times\mathbb{Z}_2$ in the following way:

G = CyclicPermutationGroup(4)
H = CyclicPermutationGroup(2)
D=G.direct_product(H)
D.automorphism_group()

However, there was an error message:

Error in lines 4-4
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/projects/0aeca2d0-1a41-47c7-b462-f4a4432bfbf3/.sagemathcloud/sage_server.py", line 881, in execute
    exec compile(block+'\n', '', 'single') in namespace, locals
  File "", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'tuple' object has no attribute 'automorphism_group'

May I know where does the error in the code lie? Thanks!

Nathann is correct. However, you also used the (slightly) wrong command for what you wanted, and it isn't quite available the way it should be.

sage: d = D[0]
sage: d1 = d._gap_()
sage: d1.AutomorphismGroup()
Group( [ GroupHomomorphismByImages( Group( [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), Group( 
    [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), [ (1,2,3,4), (5,6) ], [ (1,2,3,4), (5,6) ] ), 
  GroupHomomorphismByImages( Group( [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), Group( 
    [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ], [ (5,6), (1,4,3,2) ] ), 
  GroupHomomorphismByImages( Group( [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), Group( 
    [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ], 
    [ (1,3)(2,4)(5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), GroupHomomorphismByImages( Group( 
    [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), Group( [ (5,6), (1,2,3,4) ] ), [ (1,2,3,4), (5,6) 
     ], [ (1,2,3,4)(5,6), (5,6) ] ) ] )

See Trac 19328.

Great ! I was looking how to find the automorphoism of D[0] by changing its representation, and didn not thought to _gap_. Thanks for this hint.

The error is that D is a tuple, and not a group. Read the documentation of direct_product, by typing

sage: G.direct_product?
